Koh-I-Noor’s ancestry goes back to Bohemia, Czech Republic associated with some of history’s greatest creative minds like Alfons Mucha, Franz Kafka, Antonin Dvorák, Jan Neruda. Since the 1850s, Bohemia has become synonymous with creativity. Our modern idea of Bohemianism, and the boho chic style, comes from the very place that Koh-I-Noor began its production of art materials.
To this day, the company's core values are derived from their Bohemian roots, embracing diversity and social unconventionality, and above all, a passion for art. The Koh-I-Noor line of drawing pencils has expanded from the classic graphite pencil to over 20 degrees of graphite, colored and aquarell pencils, pastels, blocks, watercolors, and drawing accessories.
